DN-Age® is an extract from the leaves of Cassia alata (the candle tree), which is rich in a specific polyphenol that has been found to protect against the deep effects of UV radiation on the skin. DN-Age® reduces the photo-induced damages on DNA by preventing UVB-induced damage to nuclear DNA and UVA-induced damage to mitochondrial DNA. In addition, this product was clinically proven to reduce sun-induced fine line formation.

Features & Benefits of DN-Age®

This extract acts on the deep effects of UV radiation on the skin, by reducing the photo-induced damages on DNA at the nuclear and mitochondrial levels, but also acting on the visible signs of photo-aging such as the prevention of microrelief alteration due to sun exposure.

This auto-regulating protective activity against the chronic harmful effects of the sun helps the cells keep their “youth”.
